November memories

written by: Bridie Murphy


A child peers through the curtains with eyes open wide
The order was given that she must stay inside
Rain drizzles down and the sky’s a dull grey
Reflecting the tone of a very dark day
She counts as the cars pass, one, two, three and four
A pause….then another, then five or six more
Then they stop. And it’s over. And she turns with a shudder
After watching the funeral of her beautiful mother.
